I made sure I could enjoy this place on my last night because it truly is one of the best places to eat in Alvor. As a solo traveller I feel very comfortable in Alvor generally and you are spoiled for choice. But this little taverna has incredible food and an incredibly cosy atmosphere. I had razor clams for starter... More

After reading a review about this restaurant we had to find it...although on our first visit we couldn't get in we booked for the following evening. The wait was well worth it. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and is mixed with locals as well as tourists. The fish was the best I have ever had....the service was great and... More

Had cataplana here twice. Excellent food. Great wine and staff were excellent. Nothing too much trouble. The restaurant itself is lovely inside. It's got a great atmosphere as well. Busy wee place so probably best to book. Will definitely return

Family run? lovely environment downstairs (even shoulder season best to book as downstairs has best atmosphere). You may need to be prepared to share a table so there is nothing pretentious about this place but fish has to be best for quality and for value, unbeatable in Alvor town. We keep coming back has staying power been there >20 years... More

Like many other reviewers, we have been coming here for years and years. It is well hidden off the main drag but is nevertheless always packed, and it is advisable to book. It is a family affair offering simple food in simple surroundings. The fish washed down with a jug of green wine is always a winner!

Stumbled on this restaurant 20 years ago, been at least once every year since, always high quality food, warm and friendly service and fantastic value for money. The number of regulars you meet there is testimony to its enduring excellence.

We have been visiting Francesco at Guedes for around 20 years now. My Grandfather came across this excellent little family run restaurant and we have visited every year several times without fail. The fish is superb and always caught fresh that day. The restaurant is a homely one, and isn't much to look at from the outside (name of the... More

Would recommend any of the fish starters or mains, all really good. Try the trigger fish main, gorgeous meaty white fish, a local type apparently! If you like your food and... More

I have been to Alvor many times over the years and without a shadow of doubt this is the worst service and food I have experienced. There were 3 adults and one 14 year old in our party. We skipped starters and opted for a bottle of house red which was just about drinkable.One of us ordered golden bream (this... More
